“This is a system that is collapsing in on itself,” Karen Handel said during a GA-06 debate on Thursday.
The Republican candidate in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District, Karen Handel, said that the status quo on Obamacare is unacceptable and needs to be fixed during a debate on Thursday.
“First of all, the status quo on Obamacare is unacceptable. This is a system that is collapsing in on itself,” Handel explained. “We talk about skyrocketing premiums and what might happen post- the repeal and replace – ladies and gentlemen, premiums are already pricing people out of plans. That is a fact.”
Handel explained how she had experienced this personally because she is on the Obamacare market.
“We have seen our personal premiums go from $300 to almost $1,200 a month. Meanwhile, our deductable went from $2,500 to $10,000. People are already being priced out. The status quo cannot continue,” Handel continued.
Handel then said the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score is wrong regarding to the American Healthcare Act, citing how the CBO had previously made inaccurate estimates with Obamacare.
“We need to have more choice [and] get the federal government out of the way,” Handel concluded.
